Move On To Elsewhere - It's a Dump
Overall - should take it out with a wrecking ball. So deteriorated. Carpets stained. Dirty. Glass not cleaned well. Hallways stink. Sliding doors to closets and lanai barely functioning. Painted plywood cabinets. Dated (60's at best). I've stayed in Motel 6's nicer than this. View was the ONLY plus but I had to upgrade to get it. They should have comped me. I only saw two other guests there in 3 days. Ghost town atmosphere. Also - the room was right next to the Luau venue so I had to endure 3 nights of loud music and narrative. Even with airpods in and movie going, I couldn't shut out the noise. This place is a dump. Don't spend your money here.

Dumpsville, USA
We booked 2 nights at the Kaanapali Ocean Inn, with the intention of extending our stay as long as it met our expectations. I'm so glad that we didn't book the entire stay upfront!! When we arrived at the hotel, the front desk attendant informed us that they had overbooked the room that we were supposed to be staying in. So instead, we would be staying in a bungalow at their sister hotel, The Royal Lahaina. The problem with a bungalow is, that everytime someone walks by, they peer into the windows. As a woman, this felt especially creepy. So we could never leave our curtains open, instead living in complete darkness. The beach was a ten minute walk away, when the front desk agent assured us that it would only be a minute's walk. We commented that we wanted to stay in the hotel that we actually booked, and were told that they only had oceanfront rooms available, and that if we wanted to stay in one of those rooms, we'd have to pay an upgrade fee. How ridiculous!! They were the ones who overbooked!! The bungalow itself was old, run down, and smelled musty. There was hair all over the shower wall. The only good thing I can say is that the bed was comfortable. Don't waste your time and money. Find somewhere else. Thanks for ruining our vacation.

Don’t risk it
We anticipated this place would be ‘average’ standard but was far worse Than could imagine. We booked king room and got a twin (we’re on honeymoon..!) Our 3rd floor room had ants everywhere - reception did come and spray but left all the dead insects over every surface. Mold on shower ceiling and down the wall, and broken taps and cracker floor tiles. Old sunken mattress Missing balcony furniture $35 + tax to park your car Noisy rooms - above the nightly Luau (another one to avoid). Beach okay and hotel property grounds are lovely.
